New mobile CCTV cameras are to be installed to monitor the activity of HS2 construction vehicles in Buckinghamshire.
Buckinghamshire Council has purchased two mobile CCTV cameras, using HS2 Assurance funding, with contracts to operate and move between different locations over the next five years.
Ian Thompson, Corporate Director for Planning Growth and Sustainability at Buckinghamshire Council, said: ‘This is a very welcome initiative and we plan to use the cameras in locations being used by HS2 construction traffic where we have the greatest concerns about road safety and the impact on our local communities.
We will be monitoring footage from the cameras to check that construction vehicles are using approved lorry routes and to review any relevant reported incidents.‘
The cameras have initially been positioned at the Keepers Lane junction near Little Missenden on the A413 and the crossroads at the junction of School Hill and Perry Hill at Calvert.
Further information on the CCTV cameras, including a schedule of future locations will be published on the Buckinghamshire Council website at https://www.buckscc.gov.uk/services/environment/high-speed-2-hs2/.
